3 stars It's quite characteristic for last decade some well-established heavy metal musicians founded heavy fusion side projects (LTE is one of most popular between them). Ohm is another one realisation of such formula, founded by Megadeath guitarist Chris Poland.

As often in such cases, the band is power trio (without keyboards, and it's really for good). Music played is melodic heavy fusion, brewed from Chris' heavy rock guitar and very competent jazzy rhythm section. Whenever the guitar is absolutely main instrument there, possibly the correct name of album's music should be "heavy instrumental rock with jazz elements". Happily, rhythm section is quite important on many compositions, and it saves album from being just usual instrumental rock recordings.

Chris Poland is good rock guitarist ,but really not the jazz fusion one, and even if you can hear some McLaughlin influences here and there, guitar's sound is mostly pure rock. But - music is accessible, melodic, technical enough for heavy rock, and have jazzy flavour.

Good album for heavy rock fans, entering the jazz fusion doors. Nothing too much to listen for jazz-rock or fusion lovers though...
